The Wawasee Area Conservancy Foundation (WACF) was formed in 1991 to anticipate, seek out and resolve threats to the water quality in the Wawasee area watershed. The Foundation is dedicated to promoting education, encouraging best management practices to reduce erosion and acquiring wetlands and endangered shoreline areas. Now in our 25th year, our efforts have resulted in the acquisition and protection of over 10 miles of shoreline and 43 wetland areas totaling over 821 acres.
WACF Earth Day Celebration
Community residents from 1 to 91 years old gathered on April 22 to celebrate Earth Day with the WACF. After a short, educational presentation by WACF board member, Pam Schumm; some attendees took a short nature walk on the WACF trails or created wildflower “seed bombs” while others planted fifty new trees. On display were scores of posters created by area students for the school-wide “Trees of the Earth” poster competition and the winners were announced. This successful event will be continued annually by the WACF.
